Is your priority transit project in the plan? Attend this meeting to learn more about the Consolidated Transportation Program (CTP) and discuss the plan with the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT). For those who have never heard of this program before, it is a program that lays out the capital budget for all transportation projects for the next six years in Maryland.
According to the MDOT, “The Capital Program includes major and minor projects for the Maryland Department of Transportation and the modal agencies and related authorities within the Department, including the Maryland Aviation Administration, the Motor Vehicle Administration, the Maryland Transit Administration, the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, the Maryland State Highway Administration, the Maryland Port Administration, and the Maryland Transportation Authority.” Some specific projects that are discussed in the CTP are: the replacement of four bridges on I-695, another bridge replacement on I-83, upkeep of deteriorating sidewalks throughout the state, and building renovations for MDOT buildings throughout the state. The final draft of the plan will be submitted in January.
The plan discusses significant changes in the upcoming years as well as federal aid programs, pedestrian and bicycle projects, and the distribution of the budget. This November 5th there will be a meeting in Baltimore City that MDOT will be hosting and they are eager to hear all your comments and concerns. Be sure to to attend if you are interested in the future of transportation in Maryland.
